Opening up the future between science and innovation

Collegio Gallio’s upper secondary school applied science advanced biomedical specialization represents the dynamic response of our institution to a constantly evolving world. It was conceived as an innovative and advanced approach to anticipate the growing needs of scientific and technological advancement. in a context where opportunities linked to professions in the healthcare field and industrial research are constantly increasing, our biomedical program is committed to preparing students for the challenges of the future. Its main objective is to provide a solid basis for access to university faculties and professional careers in the broad context of biotechnical and biomedical sciences, in this way, we aim to provide students with the skills and preparation necessary to successfully address emerging opportunities in these crucial sectors.

Scientific – Humanistic dualism

In addition to being scientific, the upper high school presents a unique profile, offering students a solid humanistic preparation.
It stands out for its dualistic approach which distinctly combines scientific and humanistic disciplines. Commencing in the first year of the program, special disciplinary orientations are adopted, including logic, an increasingly crucial subject for tackling university entrance tests successfully.
This integrated approach offers. students a comprehensive education, embracing the complexity of scientific and humanistic knowledge. throught the study of philosophy, another curricular subject, students acquire a broader vision of the world and develop fundamental skills to critically analyse the ethical, scientific and humanistic issues that characterize contemporary society.

Collaboration with CNR-TD, digital education and scientific laboratories

At the Collegio Gallio, we have implemented an innovative approach to teaching and instruction methodologies in collaboration with the CNR-TD and the national research Centre – educational technologies. Our course of study stands out for its teaching that is strongly focused on workshops with specialists and collaborations in various areas. We offer our students a wide range of opportunities including science labs, coding sessions and soft skills development in the afternoons. Furthermore, we promote cross-age lessons with other age levels within the school and offer language certifications since Collegio Gallio is a registered Cambridge exam preparation centre. Students can also obtain the E.C.D.E. certification and actively participate in volunteer activities, organised by and managed by the school rector.
